The boat cruise was excellent, very educational regarding the history of Knysna and its surrounds. I would definitely recommend it as a must do activity.

An outstanding, informative and enjoyable ride. We thoroughly enjoyed it and all the interesting information shared . THANKYOU. A definite must do for anyone visiting the area.


You’ll discover Knysna on the Garden Route; it’s charmingly set between the Knynsa Lagoon, Indian Ocean and the Knysna forest.
